Our Arsenal fans here in the Transfer Tavern are feeling very glum right now and who can blame them?
After a Christmas and January period that saw the Gunners manage to just keep in touch with Chelsea in the title race – despite playing poorly – many felt now the games were going to space out again they would push on.
Indeed, here in the Transfer Tavern many punters saw the men from the Emirates as the favourites to challenge the Blues for the league title but last night’s showing seemed to blow that out of the water.
The Gunners somehow managed to lose to Watford at home last night in a result that suggested they still have those mental frailties that have plagued failed title challenges of years gone by.
It was a result that left our local Hornets in disbelief after they saw their club lose at Millwall last time out in the FA Cup with them being one of the most out of form sides in the league right now.
That only just condemned the Gunners even more and, unsurprisingly, Arsenal FanTV were far from impressed.
Here’s just a snippet of what was said in the aftermath of the game – courtesy of their YouTube channel:
